Introducing Out The Box: Gymbox Online dance classes you can do at home
When we founded Gymbox we wanted to make this a place that everyone could find their workout, however they like to move. Yes, that means having the best gear and massive gainz. But we also wanted to offer the best dance classes in the capital – and there’s not many gyms where you’ll find a fully-blown dance school thrown in as part of the deal. Now, you can hit up our carefully choreographed routines with some of London’s best professional dancers. Where? Out The Box, of course.
You may know us for its nightclub-inspired London locations, epic playlists and all-round party vibes. But now, Out The Box is your brand new online platform that gives you access to a whole world of heart-racing, sweat-inducing, and totally unique online classes streamed to your TV, laptop, phone … or wherever you want to train.
With fitness focused across five different categories, we pride ourselves on making sure there’s something for everyone, whenever they need it. But for those looking to make some serious moves, there’s only one way to go – our Rhythm section. There, you’ll find some of our most popular dance classes to try from your home studio, in the park… or who knows, maybe one day we’ll be able to hit dancefloors again.
If you’ve been looking for online dance workouts to do at home, you’re in just the right place. You might want to learn to dance, enjoy live classes in your living room or just like to enjoy a virtual dance. We offer live sessions you can do at home while watching our expert in the dance studio. Gymbox has been leading the way when it comes to creative classes since day one, and Out The Box gives you the same experience with London’s best dance instructors, at the touch of a button. With new content from a broad range of dance styles being uploaded online every single week, we’ll help you find your feet whatever your level, from beginners to advanced. Keep reading to find out more about our online dance classes, our amazing instructors and how you can sign up to Out The Box. But first, let’s get you better acquainted with London’s most exciting gym… Gymbox.
Founded in 2003 in a worn-out West End car park, Gymbox has been a challenger of the status quo since day one. Setting out with a vision to disrupt the fitness industry, create unique training experiences and launch the most unique timetable the capital had ever seen, it’s a club known to be anything but your average kind of gym. It was among the first to introduce full-size boxing rings, nightly resident DJs, and led the way when it comes to kit.
To say Gymbox is EXTREMELY well equipped is a bit of an understatement. With state-of-the-art cardio equipment, stunning studio spaces, whopping free weights areas and super-clean changing rooms, members can’t get enough of the place.

If you’ve ever thought that dance doesn’t give you a ‘proper’ workout, you may need to reconsider. As well as improving the endurance of your muscles, shooting your heart rate up and improving stamina; regular dance classes could be just the thing you need to keep your body working harder for longer without getting tired.
The Dance category provides plenty of online classes to keep anyone busy. As any Gymbox member will tell you, we pride ourselves on making our clubs as inclusive as possible. That means it doesn’t matter whether you’ve got two left feet or moves that would put Beyonce to shame – our classes are totally accessible to all. So, what will it be?
Rebel against the norm and chaseé to the sound of the street. A barre conditioning and rhythmic dance class to the sickest hip hop tracks.
If you’re new to barre, we can’t wait to surprise you with the intensity of this workout. As well as helping to strengthen and tone your muscles bulk-free, Barre is known to have a huge range of benefits – from improving your cardiovascular endurance and metabolism (oh hey, calorie burn) to boosting your bone density.
Live for the dancefloor? Our music-video inspired commercial class is the place to choreograph killer routines open to dancers of every level. Work the studio with high-detail, high-energy moves to the freshest chart releases. Come shake whatever you’ve got.
Don’t let the tutu clichés fool you: Barre is the tough ballet workout that’ll hand you your derrière on a plate. Combining dynamic and static movements, isometric holds, core strengthening and stretching, this is a class that keeps you on your toes – giving you a longer, leaner, stronger body and improved postural awareness.
Got sh*tloads of sass and don’t know what to do with it? Step this Shway. Strutting straight out of the 70s underground club scene, this full body dance class styles footwork, hips and chest isolations with disco, house and soul to express your most fearless self. Your arms better get ready for the shapes they’re about to throw.
Whether you’re a slave to the rhythm or addicted to bass, this catchy little conditioning class is guaranteed to get peak fitness pouring from every pore. This is bodyweight endurance to a beat, challenging your strength, sculpting your figure and making music pulse through every muscle. The floor is yours.
When bellydance meets trap, hip hop and dubstep you get the ultimate dance workout. Learn to blend bellydance isolations and waves with popping and locking.
As a full body workout, bellydancing is an incredibly effective (not to mention sassy AF) way to spice up your training routine. With big calorie burn and middle-strengthening moves, the slow and deliberate moves will keep parts of your body engaged for longer periods of time than your average reps. That means great small muscle concentration, consistent cardio and a cracking core workout. What’s not to like?
As anyone who has ever been to a Gymbox knows, our classes may be great… but it’s our instructors that make them that way. Everyone who works for us knows how to get the very performance out of anyone (yes, even through a screen) whether that’s with a bit of butt-kicking or the kind of charisma you just can’t let down. Whatever kind of online workout you’re into, we’ve got the right person to get you well into your workout. When you’ve found the ones that float your fitness boat, don’t forget to go show them some love on the ‘gram.
Our dance instructors are all real professionals, many with industry experience, to ensure that you get a world-class choreo experience as well as a bloody good workout. Rhythm Master Trainer Deedee Abdullah is an all-round creative with a vision for our studios that would be fit for any fine dance school – and she’s the one in charge of auditioning all of our instructors to guarantee they make the grade. With a hands-on approach when it comes to creating the coolest new class concepts, the team work hard to bring you sessions that you wouldn’t find anywhere else – blending commercial and classic with more contemporary beats and styles.
It really couldn’t be easier to access the dozens of online workouts on Out The Box. Simply head to the website and create your account – it only takes a few clicks and a couple of details. Once you’re all set up, you’ve got all the digital classes you could ever want, ready to try at home.
